    The Commonness Of Mental Illness

    Nobody's alone in this.

    As of 2013, NAMI states that one in every 17 U.S. adults suffer from at least one severe mental illness, and over 61 million adults in the U.S. cope with a mental illness of varied severity each year; 20 percent of adolescents aged 13-18 have a mental illness.

    This poll is an experiment to compare the demigraphs of this site to the statistics.

      I've heard of/known so many people with mental illnesses that I'm not surprised.

    If you or anyone you know shows symptoms of any mental illness, contact your local hospital or psychiatric provider, or call the 24-Hour Crisis Hotline at (212) 673-3000.
